Isaac (he/him) is a passionate believer in intentional community; he co-founded one such community with five collaborators in 2011 and has lived there with his partner ever since, and was a part of the founding team that conceived and created Creche. Before joining the Creche staff, Isaac served as the Minister of Liturgical Arts at The Crossing, a Boston-based church plant, and had a ten-year career as a session musician in New York City prior to that.
Isaac has professional certificates in nonprofit management and fundraising from Boston University, a Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary, and a dual degree in Mathematics and Music Composition from NYU. As a musician, author, and liturgist, he has written The Emergent Psalter, a contemporary setting of the psalms, and released Rotation and Transmission, two electronic pop albums inspired by liturgical texts.
He spends his spare time making music, coaching weightlifters, and playing nerdy board games.
Community Organizer for Neighborhood Engagement
Sky (they/them) is thrilled to be Creche’s first ever Life Together Fellow. They are a recent graduate of Yale College, where they studied Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality studies and wrote their thesis on trans community building at Yale over the past 15 years.
Sky’s interest in community goes back to their days as a camper and camp counselor in Vermont, and they brought a passion for community building to Yale where they helped create and served on the board of the student organization Trans@Yale. Sky also worked to strengthen Yale’s community through their jobs as a Communication and Consent Educator and as a Peer Liaison for Yale’s Office of LGBTQ Resources, a position they held their junior and senior years. As a junior they captained the Yale Women’s Rugby team.
As a Life Together Fellow, Sky will be living in intentional community this year with eight other fellows. They are excited to cook and paint with their house and to take up yoga and martial arts, and to do the hard work that is building thriving intentional community.
